In the heart of the Fisherfield wilderness, Beinn Dearg Mor and its neighbour Beinn Dearg Bheag form a horseshoe of crests, spurs, and towers encircling a lochan on the opposite side of Strath na Sealga from the mighty An Teallach.

Footpaths reach the base of Beinn Dearg Mor from Gruinard Bay to the north, Poolewe to the west, and Dundonnell to the northeast. The mountain itself has no established paths except for a twisting one up the final 150 metres of ascent through scree, approaching from the col between it and Beinn Dearg Bheag.

There are several recognised rock-climbing routes on the mountain's north and west faces, and two graded rock-scrambling routes up Beinn Dearg Mor's eastern and southern crests.
